Growing green..



Despite the heat the green walls around the city are surviving well, a testament to a good trickle irrigation system and excellent choice of plants used. I am the trickle system in my garden, the reticulation deals with the lawn and flower beds but I prefer to water my pots by hand, they are a bit like friends.. I like to keep an eye on them to see that they're doing ok :) The green wall here in Cathedral Square outside the City of Perth Library. Below my stylish new footwear for the next few weeks, tres chic oui 😉That'll teach me to look where I'm going! Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  2. I've seen only a couple of "green walls" here in the desert. With our hot, hot summers, the plants have to be chosen very carefully. Love the new footwear. Very stylish.

  4. Green wall is really nice. We need more green, vines, bushes, trees, to combat CO2. Greenery absorbs CO2 and emits O2.

    Hope your foot heal and you get out running about.

    I hope you'll be back to normal in walking mode soon.

  11. It's me again. I just read the article that the New York Times 52 Places Traveler wrote about Perth and I thought I'd share it with you. So many of the places he mentions feel familiar to me through your wonderful words and pictures. I subscribe to the NY Times and for the past two years, they've had one reporter each year travel to all the places on the newspaper's list of places to visit that year. It's a job I would have loved when I was much younger. So I read every article and follow on Instagram. When I saw that Perth was on his list, I waited for him to visit there. It's a great article. I hope you enjoy it. His year of traveling is coming to an end. I wonder who will get to do that job next year.

  14. Very attractive new shoes. I've seen many garden walls go terribly wrong, but the one you show seems to be thriving. I expect correct and monitored irrigation is the key.

  17. So sorry to hear about your tootsie! I hope it's not a bad break & you're back to normal soon.
    That wall is really fabulous.

  18. I've always wondered what happens if weeds move in on a garden like that. Do they have to get a ladder to do the weeding?

  19. We somewhere have moss-walls, but I never saw one.
    And... so sad... I had to let go of Miss Mango. So much for the choice of plants, she could not take the wooden floor that ate up all humidity.
    And, yes, Grace, she was a bit like a friend...
    Oh, shoot, broken after all?! Get well soon and yay for these shoes, right!
    In fact yours looks much fancier than mine did, you can pass as astronaut! ;-)

  20. Looks like a treatment by dr Frankenstein.

  22. Oh, poor you! That will be uncomfortable to walk around like this. The greenwall looks beautiful, ingenius system for watering. Wish you all the best with your horror foot!
